OSCODA, Mich. (AP) - The kids on the school bus went bounce, bounce, bounce. And that has led to a lawsuit in northern Michigan’s Iosco County.

The state appeals court says the case can go forward against Oscoda Area Schools and the driver, who took her bus off the normal rural route apparently because students liked the dips in Wentworth Road.

The bus went through several dips before hitting one that sent students high out of their seats in October 2011. At least two kids were bleeding.

An Iosco County judge declined to dismiss the lawsuit, and the appeals court says it was the right call. In a 3-0 decision released Wednesday, the court says jurors can decide whether the driver demonstrated a lack of concern over possible injury.
